Join professional artist Liz Chaderton for this special, 1hr Arty Class. Filmed live on 3rd December 2020.
We will use just three colours to create a simple but lively portrait of a fluffy cat and in the process learn lots about simplifying our subject to capture its essence, using wet in wet to create a fur texture, mixing hard and soft edges to create a lively portrait and sgraffito to achieve highlights. Yes, all in 1 hour!
